Battle of the Titans: Spotify Vs Grooveshark

Right here it is, The impressive battle between the two most significant (correct me if I’m wrong) music buffering services online. I’ve used Spotify a few years now and out of nowhere I were able to happened after the music service Grooveshark. So I thought I’d face these two giants in a struggle. The review will be divided to a couple different categories. Design/Interface, Content, price and Using the services on different devices that we will cover in part 2 with this review. spotifyweb

Spotify

Initially off is Spotify. We really like its design. It got nice darkness colours which makes it comfortable to look for in. By the top we have the search window to find all the tunes, artist and albums. To the left the play list panel is located. Here you can quickly access your play prospect lists and create new ones. In the middle we got the song home window. It is here all the songs will be presented to you. In the bottom we have the play controls where you can modify the quantity, play, halt and shuffle. Very simple and clean design. Fewer is more! 

Score almost eight out of 10

Grooveshark

The design is quite just like Spotify but with less appealing colours. Because a matter of simple fact it looks like an internet page coming straight away of the 90’s. Also the text fonts appears dull and utterly drab. Grooveshark really needs to focus on this.

Score 4 out of 10

Content material

Spotify

The content at Spotify is much like a tool coaster. One week you still have your play list stuffed with different songs and the next week some of them has strangely vanished. This is scheduled to licenses which Spotify still are having problems with. Do not get me wrong it still got a huge collection but sometimes I wish it had more particularly if you compare it to Grooveshark

Score 7 away of 10

Grooveshark

Really here Grooveshark really excels with it’s huge collection of music. I tune in to a music style called Psytrance. It can be really hard finding music in this genre but Grooveshark surprised us a lot when I found out completely old basic psy tracks from the 90’s that was impossible to find at Spotify. I spoke with my firend who’s really into the band Tool. This individual said that not a single song were present at Spotify. I made research online on Grooveshark and the end result? See the picture down below.

Report 9 out of 12

I made a collection of some odd music that might be somewhat tricky to find on the services. Here are the result comparing them two.

1. Total Over shadow – Transparent head
2. The Delta – Exploring at the speed of thought
3. Laser Move – Brain Mission
4. Dance 2 Trance – Power of american local people
5. UX – Expert of the universe

The result

Spotify found trail 2, 3 and 4.
Grooveshark found all of them

Score 6 away of 10

Grooveshark

A lot like Spotify there are 3 account types as well. Anywhere, Plus and the Free account. The unsecured debts has almost the same features. Anywhere costs 9$ (62 SEK), Plus 6$ (41 SEK). So with the costs, Swedes will profit if they choose Grooveshark.
